The indictment of Shai Sagan in the murder of Eli Ifergin was amended Wednesday morning from aggravated assault to manslaughter.

Ifergin's family was furious at the prosecutors for not seeking maximum punishment for Sagan. They believe Sagan approached Ifergin at the time with intent to murder.

Ifergin, 36, died Sunday at Tel Aviv's Ichilov Hospital. He had been in a coma suffering massive head injuries since October 9, when he tried to break up a fight between two women outside a nightclub in south Tel Aviv after closing hours, and was hit in the head with a motorcycle helmet by the club's promoter, Sagan.
